Over 80 illustrations. Waterfowl, such as ducks, geese, and swans, are among the most familiar and well-known birds. Their seasonal migration, along with their tendency to fly, and even walk, in striking and mysterious patterns, have long been objects of study and fascination. Whistling ducks, dabbling ducks, diving ducks, and stiff tails are featured, as well as snow geese, graylag geese, trumpeter swans, whistling swans, and mute swans. This brilliantly illustrated volume is a colorful journey into the world of waterfowl, an area that covers every continent except Antartica.
